I do not see where it shows a different filter. It calls for the EaO27 filter on the 5.7l engines for a 1990 C2500. Is that the vehicle you are referring too?

But I have a 96 350 vortec block though. 350 is 350 the same oil filter should fit either way.

Beleive it or not before or after 1-3 (on heater/ac blower) was barely noticeable 4-5 leaf blower.

Try determining which is the airflow if it's your first time(as the filters are supposed to be directional) with a piece of paper or your hand.

Even the parts guy(15 year mechanic who "changed these all the time") couldn't tell.

Wasn't sure if it had been changed(again HIGHLY unlikely but) so I ASSumed the old was right put it in and checked air flow.

Near as I can recall the arrow should point from left to right .(did it a couple of weeks ago but was pissed at the whole thing so forgot)

Yet ANOTHER thing I found the p.o. DIDN'T do.

Unless someone chimes in and says it definetly was discontinued prior to your year of truck I would check.

not all '02s(and other years) were optioned with this feature either and I didn't know (as it's not visable until you drop the sound sheild).

I was merely looking for options on running aftermarket speaker wire and where to mount my cross overs. Had I not been looking I'd probably be driving around with the dirty filter.

In reality(and someone please correct me if I'm wrong) aside from the crap you see in the pic(that's the second filter that sits behind the first) in the corner of it when I put the new and old side by side they didn't look much different(granted the filliments probably had some contaminents not seen by the naked eye) the black you see in the pic I think is really some kind of carbon/charcoal. You see it on the new also.

Now in Scotty boy's pic it's noticeable.They had three options of filters at O'Reily and I opted for the "best" and it looks darker and the same(as I said)

In reality $20 every 15,000 miles(or 12 months) isn't that bad. I mean sure it all adds up just saying.

Supposedly it makes a BIG difference especially with baking soda but I use enough air freshner and keep the interior fairly clean that I can't really tell.


If they wanted to prove to me it works they should spray liquid ass in the cowl vent intakes and let me sit in the cab to see if it filters out.

NOT MY TRUCK OF COURSE the makers of the filter and a demo truck.

We can't all remember everything. Just wait till we get older....

I have numerous note books at home with all kind of info I can't remember. ..or is it written down. The only problem is finding what I documented. Nothing is in any kind of order.
